The Fire Games

One hundred years ago, there was a time known as the Dark Days, a war that began the Hunger Games. Twenty five years ago, a change happened. The Games turned around. Capitol children are Reaped now. There is now a new name for the Games. The Fire Games.


10. Broken Heart

     Why should it matter? I mean, I'm closer to winning. Final three. I don't have a reason to feel so horrible. I - I don't know. Kicking the rocks beneath my feet, I continue walking. At first I decided to go to the Cornucopia, until I remember that is exactly where Kade would go.

     The alliance is broken, I think. If we meet up again, he'll have to kill me. Or worse, I'll have to kill him.

     I hike up a bit of the mountain until I find a cave-like area, where I decide to settle down. I silently thank Kade for tossing me my crossbow and the dried fruit package. It was all I had, except for the pre-Nightlock-treated arrows I was holding.

     I sit against the stone wall, but I slowly begin sliding down, to where I'm lying on the ground, staring at the ceiling.

     How did I get here? What happened? How did I end up in the final three with Abri and Kade?

     How is Kade? Is he okay?

     No, I remind myself. He is not an ally anymore. You shouldn't care.

     I argue back. But you do.

     I - I do.

     Sobbing, I turn on my side. I do! I care. More than care, I love! Tears fall down my face, creating a salty puddle beneath me.

     We can't be together, though. When the Fire Games began, someone tried the "Katniss-Peeta" stunt, and the two of them got blown up then and there. Kade and I are destined to live without each other.

     I only hope Abri will kill me, so I will not be faced with Kade. Or maybe, just maybe, I can die tonight of a broken heart.
